    You do never know! I miss it a little. I worked nearly everywhere, was float pool for a while after I left my permanent job. I liked most places, but it's such hard work that it gets to you after a...

    So, after working for several years as a NA, today was my last shift :) I had been working PRN for a time, and then I just decided I can't do it any more. So I managed to get a retail job that...

  4. Oh, honey.
    I am truly fortunate in that I have experienced possible maximum 5/10. I can't even imagine a 10/10 pain. I can't imagine wanting to talk, certainly not to be eating.

  7. two weeks as a CNA, and something doesnt seem right?
    Unfortunately, the nature of LTC is that it is chronically short staffed. Exactly how long had you been working before you were "left to get on with it"? I know the frustrations of taking a long...

  11. No more glucose checks by CNAs/PCTs
    In my hospital, it depends what ward I work on, most places the nurses do them before they give the insulin, only on one is it 100% the assistants job.

  12. No more glucose checks by CNAs/PCTs
    In my place, that would get the aide into trouble, although the nurse would also be in trouble, because they are meant to check the paper charts every 2 hours and initial to acknowledge they have...

  13. tips on changing total care patients
    Wow, I can't believe not one other person will help you. Is it other aides or nurses who are not helping? Some patients are impossible to roll alone if they will not co-operate or are heavy. I don't...

  14. PCT "brain" sheets?
    I can have 4-16 patients, depending on which unit I work on. With 4 being organised is easy, with 16 not it's hard. So I will be interested to know how you all manage it, too.

  18. Wedding rings at work
    We are only allowed to wear plain wedding bands. Can you buy a chain, remove the ring for work and wear it around your neck? After you leave work, you can replace it on your finger.

  21. LPN forced to work as CNA
    Thats weird. When we have extra nurses and few CNAs (happens sometimes), then the nurses will either take less patients (and do their share of the "CNA work" for their patients) or will float and act...

  22. 16hour CNA shifts
    I probably would do it if it was ONLY weekends and not in the week. I would imagine it would be exhausting on the Monday. I used to do 14 hours, and it was very tiring. But 2 days a week and the...
